ITV Studios France takes on ‘The Big Job Switch’

The Big Job Switch

ITV Studios France is producing a local version of social experiment format The Big Job Switch.

According to distributor Be-Entertainment, the adaptation has been ordered by a French commercial broadcaster but could not confirm which one.

The format, which was originally created and produced by Geronimo for VTM in Belgium, follows five individuals who resign from their jobs without knowing what lies ahead. All they do know is that a group of experts will search for the ideal job for each of them.

A second season is currently in production for VTM, while a German version was commissioned by VOX last year and option deals have been struck in Spain and Scandinavia.

Be-Entertainment MD Gepke Nederlof said: ‘’We are thrilled to work with ITVS France on this adaptation. It is such a relevant topic nowadays and proved to be a real eye opener and inspiration for the participants and viewers alike in Belgium when it first launched in Belgium.’’
